Tuareg silver is the most luxurious jewelry worn in most West African countries. Many Tuareg people who can afford to wear it will save it for only the most special occasions.
The Tuareg people of the Sahara wear jewelry made out of this silver as an indicator of wealth, position and origin.
The highly esteemed Tuareg silversmiths create a wide array of jewelry objects that all tie together using the traditional berber markings that you will see on most of the Tuareg jewelry. These etchings are clean cut, concise, geometrical and repeated over and over again through all of the Tuareg silver.
In much of Islamic culture, realistic images are considered to be sacrilegious; hence the geometric patterns. The markings stand for ancient blessings of good fortune and symbols of protection for the wearer. 
This jewelry is so sophisticated and stylish, yet so full of African meaning.Tuareg silver itself is an alloy of silver and copper, which gives it a brilliant golden tone. This is not a sterling silver, and is sometimes made from silver dollars that have been melted.

February Feature Article:Dr. Woodson & African American History Month

 
Dr. Carter Woodson
Dr. Carter Woodson
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Our nation is a rainbow–red, yellow, brown, black, and white — and we’re all precious in God’s sight.”
Jesse Jackson (1941)
Speech given at the Democratic National Convention in San Francisco on July 17, 1984
 
Black History Month commences in February with formal celebrations that pay tribute to many milestones, such as the birth of Frederick Douglass,Langston Hughes, Eubie Blake as well as W.E.B. Dubois an important civil rights leader. Black History Month also commemorates some key anniversaries, such as the passing of the 15th amendment; the swearing in of the first black U.S. senator, Hiram R. Revels; and the assassination of the militant leader, Malcolm X.
Many people take time to reflect upon the achievements of African Americans throughout U.S. history, but not many people know how it all came to be. In 1926, an eminent African American scholar named Dr. Carter Woodson established ‘Negro History Week’ which was meant to highlight the contributions that African  Americans had made to U.S. history. This particular week was chosen in February because it coincided with the birthdays of Fredrick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln – two men who had greatly impacted the black population. Soon after, the week was extended to include the entire month, as African Americans finally became recognized as an important part of the history of this country.
 Dr. Woodson himself is quite an impressive historical personality; he worked in the coal mines of Kentucky until age 20, when he began high school. He completed his course work in 2 years, and soon after earned a Ph.D. from Harvard. During his studies he was disheartened to find very little about African Americans in the history books of the time, and often when there was reference to the black experience, they were unfair and inaccurate. To combat the lack of information available, Dr. Woodson established the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now called the Association for the Study of Afro-American Life and History) in 1915, and a short time after, founded the well-respected Journal of Negro History.
 So from Dr. Woodson’s desire to give African Americans their proper place in history, we now have a nationally-recognized month dedicated to this worthy cause. It just goes to show you that one man can have a profound effect on this country if his motivations run deep enough.

Important dates in February to remember:

February 1, 1960 – In what later became a civil rights movement milestone, a group of African American Greensboro, NC, college students began a sit-in at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter.

 
February 3, 1870 – The 15th amendment was passed, granting African Americans the right to vote. 
 
February 12th, 1965 – Malcolm X, the militant leader who promoted Black Nationalism, was assassinated by three African American Muslims.
 
February 23rd, 1868 – W.E.B. DuBois, important civil rights leader and co-founder of the NAACP, was born.
 
February 25th, 1909 – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded by a group of influential African Americans and Caucasians in New York City.

Welcome to Jewels Africa Imports Loc Jewelry!

Welcome to Jewels Africa Imports Loc Jewelry!

I have been creating loc jewelry for a few years now, and have sold jewelry through meeting people throughout the natural hair community. This has been a small circle and now I am ready to enlarge this circle. Take time to browse through my store and see what you’d like. One thing that makes my pieces unique is their sturdiness and wearing ability. If the wire-coiled loc jewels are applied correctly (pushing pointed end into the top of the loc and low end of the loc), the jewel will remove between all washings, left in at night and will only need to be removed when getting a tightening or perhaps a color-treatment. I love being able to leave my jewelry in and forget about it!
